Welcome to New York…in February. That awkward time of year when you wear your winter parka one day and your light rain coat the next. Weather in NYC can be super sporadic and it always leads me to ask – what the heck do I wear today?!
Now this past week in NY has been cold and windy and basically miserable. I may be from the North but that does NOT mean I like the cold weather. Besides, no one can even see my outfit under a puffy coat, hat, and the biggest scarf I can find. So I’ve decided to start thinking about my wardrobe for Spring. My optimism tells me that Spring is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about transitional jackets.
I went through my closet to round up some of my favorite lightweight jackets and included links to similar jackets online…all under $100! Let’s try to ignore this cold winter weather and start prepping our wardrobes for Spring.
Leather jackets are classic. They can be dressed up or dressed down, look great with pants or a dress, and can go from day to night. As someone who loves wearing pastels, I’m obsessed with this millennial pink leather jacket. As soon as you throw on this jacket over some dark jeans and a t-shirt, you instantly look ready to take on the day.
I love bombers because they’re so easy to wear. Whenever I’m feeling a more laid-back/casual look, I love to throw on sneakers, ripped jeans, and a bomber. This bomber is especially fun because it also ties in my obsession with ruffles. Ruffles are super on-trend right now and are a fun way to add something new and different to our basics.
Ok yes I know this is another bomber but it’s a FUR bomber. I had to. Fur has continued to be a strong trend this winter and is usually done in deep, lux colors. I love how this jacket lets the fur trend continue into early Spring with light colors and a short, sporty silhouette. Besides, who doesn’t want to leave the house feeling like they have a fuzzy blanket on – it’s sooo cozy!
If you have any questions or comments about any of these looks please reach out – I love to hear feedback!
